Clapper: Watergate ‘Pales’ in Comparison to Russia Scandal

7

James Clapper, former director of national intelligence, said the 1970s Watergate scandal “pales” in comparison to the current investigations looking into President Trump’s possible collusion with Russia. Clapper made the remarks during a speech to Australia’s National Press Club on Wednesday.

“I think you compare the two, that Watergate pales, really, in my view, compared to what we’re confronting now,” he said. Clapper also said it was “absolutely crucial for the United States, and for that matter for the world, for this presidency, for the Republicans, for the Democrats and for our nation at large, that we get to the bottom of this.” Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey was also “egregious and inexcusable,” Clapper said, adding that reports of Trump sharing intelligence with the Putin regime are “very problematic.”

He also disclosed that Trump asked him in early January to publicly debunk the findings of U.S. intel community report that Russia had meddled in the election. “Ever transactional, he simply asked me to publicly refute the infamous dossier, which I couldn’t and wouldn’t do,” Clapper said. Read more at THE GUARDIAN.

  1. HASHEM YERACHEM WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THE US GOVERNMENT. A bunch of crooks and liars who are all aware that the CIA themselves are behind the “Russian scandal” and Dmitri Alperovitch was paid to hack its server so it could be blamed on Russia!!

    The plot to frame Russia — for the DNC’s own criminal conspiracy — was CLOSELY COORDINATED BETWEEN THE DNC AND THE C.I.A. AND CARRIED OUT WITH THE FULL SUPPORT OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. Given that the heads of virtually all 17 AGENCIES within the U.S. Intelligence Community were ready and willing to support the necessary crime wave, it was an obvious brainchild of Deep State. CTO Dmitri Alperovitch is a creation of Deep State, and was carefully set up as the point man for the hacking scheme.

    • Arye, please provide proof of your outrageous statements. Do you even know any of the 17 IC agency heads? I do. You are full of it.

      • It’s one thing to accuse your opponent of having no proof, while it’s something else to categorically state that your opponent is wrong without a doubt. According to you, anyone who makes statements without a proof is “full of it”, then you, sir are not any better.

  2. If Clapper was so concerned and he was still working for Obama when the alleged Russian meddling was taking place, why didn’t he publicize it? Why was Obama silent? Did THEY want Hillary to lose?

  3. How about Bill’s, Hillary’s and Hussein’s numerous acts of bribery, treason and obstruction of justice?! How about selling American uranium to a Russian government’s owned company, and then receiving “speech fees” from the Russians? How about providing money and resources to Islamic Brotherhood and Iran? How about providing American technology to chicoms and kims? How about allowing black panthers voter intimidation? How about “fast and furious”? How about the imperial president refusing to enforce the laws that his majesty didn’t like? How about numerous other acts that make Watergate seem like a walk in the park? If Trump has any brains, he should aggressively prosecute members of Bill’s and Hussein’s administrations – that would immediately stop all these baseless anti Trump accusations and will serve justice at the same time. You don’t need to be a genius prosecutor in order to find all kinds of DemocRatic dirty laundry – it’s all out in the open.
